And VA wants more money?
Take two minutes and look at this clip by Rep. Miller. VA does not have a
resourcing or funding problem; it has significant management and
prioritization issues. We do not give alcoholics more booze,
we should treat the VA similarly. /S/ Drew
Drew Early, Esq.
“We’re in the midst of a transformation in the VA right now,” he said.
“Our transformation is all about getting centered back on our customer.”
Fiorina also reiterated that she would dramatically seek to cut the overall size
of the federal workforce via attrition by not re-hiring retiring federal
employees. Fiorina is not the first presidential candidate to take aim at the VA.
Donald Trump also made a promise to fire “corrupt and incompetent
VA executives” in a reform plan he released for the agency
several months ago as part of his presidential campaign.
It's been nearly a year since the incident in a parking deck took place,
however, just days ago, an internal investigation was launched against the nurse.
Acting director Victoria Brahm has emailed employees reminding them about
the VA's sexual harassment policies after a hospital employee reported
being the victim of inappropriate contact by another worker.

Waste, fraud and abuse… that's what a whistleblower says they
saw first-hand at the Bay Pines VA Hospital in St. Petersburg.

veterans as an excuse to evade questions by Fox News
pundit and debate moderator Megyn Kelly.
They served the United States on battlefields from Korea to Iraq, but now they

Have you received a letter from VA with an
IRS Form 1095-B, “Health Coverage” ?
You, VA and the Internal Revenue Service
The Affordable Care Act requires most U.S.
taxpayers to declare they have minimum
essential health coverage on their federal tax form.
In December, VA will begin a mailed letter
effort to notify all enrollees and beneficiaries
of their VA health care coverage
period in 2015. Included with the letter will
be IRS Form 1095-B, “Health Coverage”,
detailing VA health care coverage in 2015.
Veterans and beneficiaries should
use this form to complete
the 2015 income tax forms. The law also
requires VA to provide this information
to the Internal Revenue Service.
Mailings are expected
to be completed by the end of January 2016.
WHEN Donald J. Trump removed himself from the Republican debate last week and
threw a huge public relations party for himself, he did what many politicians before
him have done: He cynically used United States military veterans to elevate his own
political standing. His alt-rally, called a “Special Event to Benefit Veterans
Organizations,” held in Des Moines, was the type of circus we’ve come to
expect from the former reality TV star turned politician.
Thankfully, the candidate stopped short of ringleading a few acts under
his big top — no Marines on the overhead trapeze, Navy SEALs balancing
balls on their noses or Special Forces walking the tightrope.
The investigators didn't say whether the records were deliberately
falsified to make the clinic's performance look better than it was.
"If a bomb goes off, our wounded warriors, instead of losing their legs,
their arms, worse, they're okay," Trump told the crowd.
"They go for a little ride upward, and they come down. "
Congress is looking into why veterans are being denied

Four U.S. senators are calling on the Army to stop kicking out soldiers who
served in Iraq or Afghanistan and have been diagnosed with mental
health problems or traumatic brain injuries — effective immediately.
A high-ranking Department of Veterans Affairs official on Tuesday defended
the VA’s failure to discipline two employees accused of misconduct, and
blamed the outrage over theirlenient treatment on “considerable
external pressure” by the media and Congress to punish
personnel who may not have done anything wrong.
A Congressional hearing will begin Wednesday in response to a CBS News
investigation that showed how a costly new cure for hepatitis C
isn't making it to most of the 200,000 U.S. veterans infected with the
disease, many as a result of their service. Congress has given
$2.7 billion taxpayer to treat veterans with hepatitis C, but only
15 percent have been treated with the drug, one that might
not exist without government funding.
A bipartisan group of senators is offering legislation aimed at cutting down
the amount of time it takes for the Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA) to handle a disability claim.
More than 10 months have passed since Michael Grubler alerted Veterans
Affairs officials to a glitch in the phone system when veterans
contemplating suicide call the VA Medical Center in North Las Vegas.
